The Conversation...

is arguably Coppola's best film. Arguably in purely cineastic terms. But I'm not going to lecture you about it, all I can offer is to make you curious. Even on this second viewing, which removes the element of surprise -brilliantly set up and gratifying- the movie remains perfect.
And it comes with a bonus too, at least for those of us who were too young in the first half of the 70's: Though staying completely away from the stridency of say, a New York Scorcese film of the period, without dealing with any politics or ideologies at all, it manages to capture a world suddenly gone sour, depleted of warmth and colour. It features Gene Hackman at his best, a chilling Harrison Ford in a secondary role and a brief but Wow appearance by Teri Garr.
